A door opens, great things happen.
(Sorry, follow-up to that last anon because I walked away for 2mins and realized I didn't actually properly ask the question I wanted to ask). Do you find that this season has been harder on Beckett's character, in the same sense that S7 and bits of S6 were hard on Castle's? Not in a bad way, just in the sense that he was at fault disproportionately (the thing with Alexis in S6, disappearance, etc.) to the rest of the characters. Sorry I got ramble-y (that's a word, right?) on the first try!
